  1. [quote user="Cambridge Yellow"]I agree with the comments above. The majority of the target audience support the "bigger" teams. So the BBC has no choice but to cater for them to a certain degree in terms of air time and exposure. I also think the lack of coverage is a good thing. We have got some serious footballers at this club. The longer they fly under the radar and we keep hold of them the better.[/quote]

    If we subscribe to that view, then things will only stay the same, the ''big'' clubs will remain the biggest. Surely its all about entertainment, not just games featuring the big clubs.

    In truth, more people support teams other than the big four, or however mean teams this week qualify to be called ''big'' , so why not spread coverage out.

    Otherwise the game really is doomed.

    Its the same on the BBC sports webpages with endless blogs and features about Chelsea, Man Utd and even QPR now Old ''Arry is manager there.

    The Friendly Cup

    Greg Down''s testimonial was on the Monday night, and there was a huge Sunderland flag over the away section.

    For such a historic day, my memories are not clear. We travelled up with Ambassador coaches, and when we arrived at Wembley every pub was heaving with Sunderland fans, but they were brilliant, shaking our hands and making us welcome. Dread to think what it would have been like if Chelsea had won through toe semis!

    After the game, we were so quiet on the coach; stunned I think, and the Sunderland fans were all singing ''we lost the cup!''. Took nearly two hours to get out the coach park and onto the road.
  3. I seem to remember the club shop selling two t shirts based on beer about a decade ago. I know I still have the Budweiser one, to claim intellectual property rights, wouldn''t the club have to have some proof they came up with the phrase first? And as the phrase, On The Ball, pre-dates the football club, they really don''t have a leg to stand on.

    Of course, having the money to challenge this is another thing.

    I hope the brewery carries on, without the club crest of course.

  4. I echo what has been said above. The club crest is NCFC''s property for sure, but On The Ball? Its not even On the Ball, City.

    Seems a coincidence that they decide to act as we get into the Prem and not last season of before.

    I have read the club''s statement, and while it speaks of intellectual rights, OTBC clearly isn''t, but who has the money to fight their action?

    I hope the brewer continues making the ale, with the modifications but keeping the name.

    I remember Arsenal trying to claim the term ''Gooners'' a couple of years back, and were met by a backlash from fans, maybe we should create a backlash here too.

    Re: BBC Sport

    Greg,

    You are indeed a silly little man, stop annoying the fans on here when it should be a time for celebration. If you want to find offence you will surely find it; don''t you have better ways to spend your time.

    if you want to have a religious debate, pm me, as i have studied the history of the bible, and the way it has been edited over the centuries.

    The gospel of st thomas says that the kingdom of god is inside each and every living thing. Thus negating the need for organised religion.

    Of course that got edited out.

    RELIEF

    Hopefully this means we won''t see a return to the negativity we saw after Tuesdays result.

    Well done to Paul and the players after today''s game.

    Hopefully CAFC rot in league for years to come after booing our players and not for selling me a ticket even though I live in their catchment area. To see those empty seats was awful; each one could have meant £20 to Charlton; instead they chose to have them empty.

    Small minds, small club.

    Football league watch/ match thread

    What the heck is happening at Dirty Leeds? Not that I care, though!

    I think my telly is broken.

    Quite a shocking game from what I saw in the 2nd half, that pitch is certainly a disgrace, and considering it''s a new stadium, whoever laid it must have done something seriously wrong.

    And less that 4,000 for a home game, all those empty seats did not look good.

    And then the game, very little skill on show by either team. Sorry Col, but it''s true.

    WACCOE: Losing the plot

    Thing is, they win their game in hand and win at Carrow Road, they''re only one point behind. This simple fact seems to have bypassed them by.

    Anyone who is slightly positive is shouted down and accused of being delusional.
  10. They certainly have a way with words on their board.

    The reaction when we scored the second was priceless.

    TWTD and WACCOE forums

    Which is why I''m not joing in any celebration of Twon going down or us winning the league; too many games to go. I believe we will go up of course.

    WACCOE is an endless source of amusement, I don''t like to gloat, but even in our darkest days it was never like that on here.

    Anyone else listening to the leeds match?

    I just can''t believe how negative they are on WACCOE, I mean, Jeez guys, a couple of results.

    It''s hard not to laugh, though.
  13. One of the funniest things I have read in ages. Reminds me of the Wolves fan''s "You''ve let us down, again" banners. Preparing for failure.
  14. For you information, gents.
